Notice regarding conclusion of the audit 2020-21

The audit guidance and data collection template for the Whole of Government Accounts consolidation has still yet to be issued by central government and as such Grant Thornton UK LLP are unable to formally certify the closure of the audits until the requirements are made clear. This is a national issue and no 2020-21 Local Government audits have been certified as closed. Therefore the notice of conclusion of the audit required under Regulation 16 (1) of the Accounts and Audit Regulations 2015 cannot yet be published.

Police Precept (Council Tax)

2022/23

The Police and Crime Commissioner determines the amount of funding to be raised through the council tax in February. This funding, sometimes called the Police Precept, is included on the council tax demand you receive from your local council.

From December  2021 to January 2022, the Police and Crime Commissioner ran a public consultation asking the public for their feedback on how best to meet the challenges facing police in the county.

Local residents and businesses were asked to consider whether they would support an increase in the policing element of Council Tax or whether they would prefer to freeze the level of the Police Precept. Background information was provided on the potential impact of precept increases at £5 per year, £7.50 per year or £10 per year (for average Band D properties), along with the impact of no rise.  Questions relating to the affordability of a rise were also considered by the Commissioner prior to formulating his draft budget proposals.

The consultation showed there was a majority of support for a raise, albeit with around a third of respondents concerned that any raise would unaffordable to them.  A full summary of the consultation results can be found below:

Budget Consultation Results 2022-23

As a result of the feedback received from the public and confirmation of national funding settlements, the Commissioner proposed a police precept increase of  3.95%. This equates to £9.99 a year, or around 83 pence per month for a Band D property.  The Commissioner’s Draft 2022-23 Warwickshire Budget Report was then presented to the Police and Crime Panel on January 27, 2023.

The Panel reviewed the proposed precept and chose not to support the proposed increase for 2022/23, exercising their right to veto, by issuing a report to the Commissioner on 3 February 2022:

The Commissioner considered the comments and report from the Panel and in doing so has issued his revised precept proposals for 2022/23, which he presented to the Panel on 10 February.  A majority of panel members voted to support the proposals.

The Commissioner formally wrote to the panel in response to their report on 14 February 2022:

The Panel replied to confirm their support of the revised budget proposals on 17 February and the Commissioner’s letter of reply to the Panel was made on 18 February 2022:

Council Tax Information

The Commissioner has published a full page of information outlining the Budget for 2022/23 and amount which local taxpayers will contribute through the precept.  This can be found on the link below:
